one year full text American Libraries online

ALA is partnering with ebrary to get the full text of American Libraries online. It was not quite working yesterday. Today it seems to be working. To get there, follow these easy steps

  1. Go to http://www.ala.org/
  2. Click the link to American Libraries. This takes you to http://www.ala.org/al_onlineTemplate.cfm?Section=alonline
  3. Click the link on the side that says “Read American Libraries on eBrary” which takes you to http://www.ala.org/ala/alonline/alonlineebrary/alonlineebrary.htm
  4. log in
  5. Click the link that says “search the full text of American Libraries on eBrary”
  6. Click the link that says “Click here to search American Libraries online with eBrary”

note: some of these steps can be avoided if you are smart enough to click on the current issue of AL in the upper lefthand corner of the American Libraries main page.
note: do not click on any of the header links once you are using ebrary. Bad things happen.
note: all appearances to the contrary, ebrary is properly written in all lower case.
